K7 triton GA-7N400 Pro2 Can't get an OS loaded
I'm helping a friend build a computer with a K7 Triton GA-7N400 Pro 2 motherboard. But I can't get an OS to load. I've tried to change the CD-Roms, OS disks, and OS itself, with the same result. The os install goes on to the point where it starts copying files, then gives an errror that it cannot copy file.whatever, and the install halts. Also, sometimes I get a blue screen of death just after the cannot copy file error. Some times it goes to 65% some times less. Also, it doesn't always halt on the same file either. Any help would be apreciated. Thanks.
